Appalachian Trail - Glastenbury Mountain


Follow the Appalachian/Long Trail, marked with white blazes, north, crossing the William A. McArthur Bridge. At 1.7 miles, there is a spur trail that leads to the Melville Nauheim Shelter. The trail continues on, crossing under a set of power lines with views to the east and west. A wet area, protected by puncheon, is traversed just before a bridge across Hell Hollow Brook at 3.1 miles. A lookout is reached at 4.3 miles and then the summit of Little Pond Mountain at 5.5 miles. From here, the trail follows the ridgeline to Glastenbury Mountain at 7.4 miles, descends, and then climbs steadily to reach Goddard Shelter at 9.8 miles. A short hike of 0.3 miles to the fire tower on the Glastenbury summit (3,748 feet) will yield a 360- degree view of the Green, Taconic, and Berkshire Mountains.
